Our story

Always with farmers

Our story begins in Italy. For over 75 years, we have been working with farmers to help them face the challenges of their job. We are committed to the production and marketing of chemical intermediates, pesticides, biologicals, biostimulants, plant growth regulators, fertilisers and seeds: we are integrating both the expertise in synthesis of active ingredients and the capabilities in formulation and registration of finished products.

Since 1946, the year in which Emilio Gagliardini and Professor Baldo Ciocca founded Sipcam, as a company specialising in the production and marketing of chemical products for agriculture, our approach has always been inspired by the value of responsibility. We support the agricultural production with solutions that respect the land, the people who cultivate it, and the consumers

In 1970, Giorgio Gagliardini took over from his father, Emilio, and founded Oxon with the aim of developing and synthesize active ingredients.

In 2018, Sipcam and Oxon became a single company led by the new generation of the Gagliardini and Ciocca families.

Our story
One of the strengths of Sipcam: the ability to produce various components of the machinery used in the plant on its own
Our story
A team of workers observes what happens inside the machinery, modern and advanced for the time. The workers approach innovation
Our story
The packaging and shipping phases of the products were also carried out by careful and qualified workers
Our story
The enthusiasm and team spirit of the workers was also enhanced by the desire for a resurgence of post-war Italy

Relationship with Japanese R&D

The relationship with Japanese industry has always been synonymous of innovation and reliability for us. This is both because the collaboration with the main Japanese research & development companies has allowed us to diversify and add even more value to our product portfolio, and because their business philosophy is in line with our culture of mutual respect and deep trust.

Origins in Italy, future in the world
The early 1970s are the turning point: the internationalization process begins in European countries, and western and eastern markets, thanks to the development of factories, sales offices and joint ventures. Even today, in order to seize the opportunities offered by the market, we promote partnerships and collaborations with companies and stakeholders, both locally and internationally.
